After summer, very few people nurse the thought of organizing a great tea party. But, a fall outdoor tea party gives you the chance to enjoy yourselves by the fireside with nice hot tea and foods. Here are some useful fall tea party ideas that you can use.
To start with, the table for the fall tea party could be decorated with Indian corn, pumpkins, marigolds and squash which are available in some places around this time of the year. The table can also be made to look more natural by covering it with fallen leaves in different colors. You should also add lighted candles of all shapes and sizes, and use a big bowl of fruit as a centerpiece.
Another fall party tea idea is that an improvised extension to the patio table could be formed. The extension could be made with a piece of plywood placed on top of high plant stands and covered with an orange or green bedspread heavy enough to hold everything together. It should also be decorated in such a way that guests won’t have the chance to lean on it. Then place chairs round the fireplace, and make sure you conceal the source of music by placing speakers in a hidden spot. Impress your guests with your creativity enough for them to want to imitate you.
Chicken breasts, kabobs, fish, hot dogs and steaks make nice fall tea party ideas in term of the menu. The hot dogs could be fired on a grill for the kids with desserts provided as well. The grill should also be supplied with chili – the homemade type.
Teas can be served to guests with cinnamon sticks provided as stirs. Alternatively, you may choose to serve mint tea with alcohol added. Here is a preparation for such a beverage:
Prepare a suitable quantity of tea and chill. Get a highball glass; add ice cubes, mint sprig and sugar of not less than 1 teaspoonful. Rub rim of glass with lime, and add some lime juice, then proceed to crush together. After that, add rum and approximately half cup of tea, and then add water. The beverage is ready to be enjoyed.
